There's no match history between these two teams.
There was no line at the time this article was published and lines for Nicaraguan basketball seem to be coming out very late, so who knows when and if one will be released. With that said, San Isidro is playing the better basketball by far and did a good job of bouncing back yesterday with a comfortable victory over El Rama. San Isidro have now won 10 of their last 11 games and a good portion of those victories have been decided by double digits. Nandaime have been a mixed bag the last couple of weeks and are coming off a game in which they allowed 102 points to Matagalpa. With an offense that lacks any real depth, Nandaime isn't a team I want to get behind often when playing above-average teams. This is simply a bad spot for Nandaime.
San Isidro rolls in this game and remains one of the hottest teams in the league.
